WHY WE RACE
United Way of Hunt County is back to make a splash at The Great Duck Derby! Adopt your ducks and join the fun!
The Great Duck Derby will unite the community in support of United Way of Hunt County and local nonprofit organizations. The Great Duck Derby, presented by Red River Credit Union, Splash Kingdom Waterpark and additional sponsors, will be held on Saturday, May 20, 2023 from 5:00pm - 8:00pm. Grab your quacking squad and join the community sponsors and fellow duck adopters to enjoy the waterpark and cheer on your ducks!
DUCK ADOPTION IS OPEN. 5,000 happy rubber ducks are looking for parents to race around the Splash Kingdom’s Jet Stream (Lazy River). Each duck is numbered and represents an adoptee. The first three ducks to cross the finish line will be winners! 1st Place - $1,000, 2nd Place - $500, and 3rd Place - $250. Additional prizes will also be awarded! Adopt your ducks now!
All profits raised at the Great Duck Derby support United Way of Hunt County’s mission of improving education, promoting healthy living, and helping all residents of Hunt County achieve financial stability. United Way of Hunt County's programming includes Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library, Neighborhood Little Libraries and Mini Food Pantries, Mobile Shower Services, Partner Agency funding with local nonprofits, and more.
It’s quack time. Adopt your ducks now!
